Spanish parliament approves new liberal abortion law
Catholic World News - February 25, 2010
The Spanish parliament has approved new legislation that establishes a woman's "right" to abortion and eliminates all restrictions on abortion during the first 14 weeks of pregnancy. The new law also allows 16-year-old girls to obtain abortions without their parents' consent. The bill, advanced by the government of Prime Minister José Zapatero, was strongly opposed by the country's Catholic bishops, who warned that no Catholic legislator could vote for the bill in good conscience.
